Amber B 0:47
Hey, hey, hey, welcome back to another Friday episode of Biceps After Babies Radio, I'm your host, Amber Brueseke. And just like every Friday, we are bringing you a story of a woman who has done it, or is in the process of doing. I actually had somebody on a coaching call recently say, “I think you should rename the series of the ‘I Did It’ Series to the ‘I'm Doing I’ Series”. And I actually, I loved that comment. Because I think it really is true, I think there isn't a finish line. Like nobody ever finishes, nobody ever reaches the pinnacle. And that's like as high as you can go and there's never anything else. Like, there's always that next level of growth, there's always that next step, there's always that, you know, next thing that you're gonna try or test or experiment with, or, you know, push yourself towards and I think that's the beautiful part of life. So I do like this idea of, it's the “I'm Doing It” Series, these are women who are in the process, they're in the trenches, and they're doing it and there's lessons to be learned from their experiences.
Amber B 1:45
And that's why I brought Audra Davis on to the podcast today. Because she is, she's doing it, she's in the middle, she's in the messy middle. And for those of you who have an experience with chronic illness, or have an experience of health problems, preventing you from seeing the results that you want, or a frustration that comes with people who maybe tell you because of your circumstances or because of an experience that you know, weight loss is impossible for you. This episode with Audra is really going to make you rethink that and rethink the approach to things. One of the things that Audra says at the very end of the podcast that I thought was so wise, is she talks about how when you're ready for the next step when you're ready for that next breakthrough, that things kind of coalesce around you to make that happen. And I've always said that, I've always said: “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear”. And I think it's really true, I think people can come and they can listen to my podcast, or they can interact with me, and maybe they're not ready for what I have to provide, maybe they're not ready for the type of coaching that I have. And they have to go through other experiences first, to be able to learn those lessons or understand those different things. But I feel, and I can say this because I've heard this over and over again, of people who, when they are ready and they hear what I have to offer, and they hear that type of coaching, it just resonates so deeply with them. And they listen to podcasts, they're like, “Yes! This is it. Like there's something so different about this.” And I really think that is a testament to this idea of like when you are ready, when the student is ready, the teacher will appear, who you should be learning from next, who is going to offer you that next breakthrough is what is going to appear in your life. And that's really what has happened for Audra. And I want you to listen as you listen to this episode, because she goes through pretty quickly some like really major breakthroughs that she had in her mindset around the transformation that she wanted. And I want you to listen for those because they're hidden, not hidden, but they're quickly addressed in this episode. And each and every one of those like we could have a whole podcast episode on a lot of the things that she talked about. But she's really going to give you a high-level idea of if you recognize, hey, my mindset needs some work. This is where I need to focus I need to address, she gives you some of those things that you can start working on right now. So let's jump into the interview with Audra Davis.
Amber B 4:10
All right, I am so excited to welcome Audra to the podcast today. Audra, thanks for being here.
I'm so honored that you asked me and that I have this opportunity to share a little bit about my journey.
Amber B 4:21
This is going to be great. You have such a unique story and I think it's going to really there gonna be other people who are going to be touched by your story and your experience. So thanks for being willing to share it. So let's start off a little bit just about you. And you know, what makes you unique? What makes you Audra?
Yeah, so there's some things that are not also unique, but I am a mama to small children. So I have a one-year-old and a four-year-old. And then I also have a little bit unique is I have a 19-year-old. So I am personally 36 but I adopted my daughter when she was five. So I parented her and then had a lot of fertility issues, never thought I'd be able to get pregnant because I had a chronic health issue. And they just basically said, like, you just won't ever have kids naturally. And that was kind of I just expected that. And God did some pretty amazing things in my life. And I ended up having two boys, biologically. Later on in life, my first I got pregnant with when I was 32. And then a couple of years later with my second, had a 2020 baby. So you know, pandemic baby. And it was amazing actually, it was, the pandemic was amazing for me. Because, not all the horrible things going on. But I had always wanted to do a home birth. But I wasn't a candidate because of my health issues. And I ended up I had hired a midwife to go into the hospital with me. Because I felt the first time I wasn't very listened to about what I wanted. And it was very stressful for me, because I had a lot of black and white thinking I wanted things to go the way I wanted it to right. And so the second time, I was like, I am not going to try to advocate for myself while birthing a baby. So I had hired a midwife to go with me. But then the pandemic happened. And they said, No, I'm sorry, she can't come in. And so I basically was like, please, please deliver my baby at home, you know, I will pay the difference. And so that's what we did. And she said, you know, you have health issues, if you feel safe, I won't be able to help you if you have a heart issue, like I know nothing about heart issues. And so I signed some paperwork saying I took full liability for that aspect of my health, and had a perfectly healthy, wonderful home birth. And so it was very healing for me. And then now my daughter who's 19 is pregnant, and so I'm going to be a grandma soon.
Amber B 5:15
Oh my gosh.Congratulations!
Yeah, thank you. Yes, it was a little earlier than I had hoped that she would decide to do that. But she's wanted to have a baby since she was 12. So I guess 19 is better than 12.
Amber B 7:11
So you're gonna be a 36 year old grandma?
Yep. Yeah. Well, 36 because she's gonna have the baby this month. Yeah. So she's bearing, yeah.
Amber B 7:21
Oh, my gosh, you're going to be a 36-year-old grandma.
Yeah. And then my youngest is one, so he'll be a one-year-old uncle. So that'll be fun. I guess the other things about me that are a little bit different from most people is I have a condition. I will always have it. I'm in remission, but it's called dysautonomia. And I'm not sure if you're familiar. I know you have a nursing background. But it is really rare. So for anybody that doesn't know, it's a dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system. So what that means is anything in my body, that's automatic, won't always work correctly. So I started flatlining when I was 15. My heart was stopping. I had like a lot of stomach issues, anything that your body does without thinking about it, I would struggle with because my vagus nerve was damaged by a virus by Epstein Barr Virus. And so I struggled with a lot of health issues over the years.
And because of that, I had a lot of weight struggles. But my weight struggles were unique because whenever I got sick, I initially had a stomach condition that didn't allow me to eat, I couldn't eat anything. And if I ate I immediately vomited. So I wasn't very big to start with and then I lost tons of weight. And I was like, very malnourished, I just couldn't eat. Then I went to Mayo Clinic, it was very hard to get my diagnosis, but I got my diagnosis. My mom was just advocating for me like crazy because she was like this, we can't just leave this, you know, we have to have an answer of what's going on. And they diagnosed me and put me on medication. And that medication then allowed me to eat, but I had not eaten for like two years. It was a long time waiting. And so my body was basically in starvation mode. So that's what they said. They're like your body's in starvation mode. So what happened when I started eating is I gained so much weight because my body wanted to store that fat in case I did not eat again. It's like I want to protect myself, which is totally normal. So I gained a lot of weight. Like I had lost maybe 40 or 50 pounds during that time and was malnourished, first malnourished but then I went up to like 100 about 125 over what I was at that time so then I was overweight. So that caused a lot of body dysmorphia. And I just like you know, it was just very hard to keep up with everything that was happening like one point I was like, just malnourished and then you know, I was overweight and I just couldn't really, as a teenager it was hard to grasp all, that I guess, yeah.
Amber B 10:01
How old were you at that time?
It started when I was 15 years old. So, yeah. And I mean, you're going through so much right at that spot in your life anyway, you're hormonal, you know, you're wanting to impress boys. And, you know, it was just, it was very isolating and stressful. I had a great group of friends. But I didn't get to go to school that much because I was always passing out. I was always sick. And so yeah, it was a challenging part of my life. Okay, so I was sick for a very long time because I had, like, I was on, to give you an idea, I was on 21 pharmaceuticals, to manage my symptoms. Twenty one and it was all to manage this automatic stuff. So I was taking something for my nerves because I had small fiber neuropathy. Even though I didn't have diabetes, I had autonomic neuropathy. I had, you know, dumping syndrome, I had pseudo blockage of the small intestine, I had gastro precise. Like, you know, your body just can never reach homeostasis with that-
Amber B 11:08
You could totally be a nurse, just all of those things that just flew off your tongue. Like, you just talked like a nurse. And, you know, like second nature to you.
I know. And I thought about I should do some kind of advocating for people because I do know the language and I've been in the world. Yeah. And I did some teen advocating for a little bit, and I kind of fell out of it. But yeah, you kind of have to when you have something rare, you have to learn the language because I would go to the doctor, and they'd be like, you have what? What is that? You know, what does that mean? Let me tell you what it is. Let me explain this to you. And I did. I explained it to like a lot of doctors in my area. I live in central Missouri, a very small, remote area. I actually did educate a lot of the local doctors, and now they have diagnosed other people who probably wouldn't have been diagnosed for seven years that the typical diagnosis window is seven years after onset. So yeah, so like three or four different doctors have told me like, oh, I diagnose somebody because you explained this to me. So that's been very rewarding.
Amber B 12:12
That's cool. So cool.
So yeah, anyway, we could go on and on about health stuff. But in that window of, of what your area of expertise is, I ended up going to school in 2016 for Integrative Nutrition because I was just getting sick of all the medications, they were making me feel worse. And like, I would take one to help another, and then I would get side effects from that and have to take another. I was on seven antihistamines. And I would still walk outside and break out in full-body hives, like, I was like, no, like, you can't live like that because it makes you tired. Like, it was just unbelievable. So I went to school because I thought there has to be something I can do, like what was within my lifestyle, within my own realm of things that I can do. And so I went to school for Integrative Nutrition. And I learned a lot about nutrition, but not the kind of nutrition you do, right. So it's not the mindset stuff, it's not the macros stuff is it's more like, how to eat for healing. And so I did that I did, I basically did it for myself, I just wanted to, like know how to do it, and to help people in my surrounding areas, but mostly just I wanted to feel better. So I attended that program for a year. And I did, I did a huge amount, a significant amount of changes in my life, I went low tox. So that just means, you know, I eliminated any toxins in my life that I could whether that means fragrance, or parabens, I went to eating about 95 to 100% organic.
And for some people, that doesn't matter, but it made a huge, huge difference for me. And you know, everybody's bio-individual. So some people can do all the toxins and their body eliminates them great, right. But I have genetics, a gene mutation, where I do not eliminate those things, and my body just can't handle it. So it was building up, it was just building up, building up. And then my body was just trying to eliminate the best it could, but it doesn't do it properly. So when I eliminated all those things, I started feeling better. And I started feeling stronger. And I could get to a point where I could actually cook my food because before it was like I had to eat the packaged stuff because I just didn't have the energy to cook and I was taking care of my little girl that I adopted. And you know, it was just like I was at that point I was in a very, very toxic relationship. And I was working full time taking care of my daughter and then trying to heal and then I went to school after that. So the relationship was before I went to the schooling but leading up to that it was just a lot of not only environmental factors that were affecting my health but you know, mental factors, you know when you're being spoken to and, and put down and you know, all the things that come with an abusive relationship. It can really take a toll on your life and on your body. And so I was able to like learn through that program not only like how to eat better and more nourish my body, how to eliminate toxins. But I also learned, you know, about breathwork and doing deep breathing, which helps reset your autonomic nervous system, which is amazing and helps bring you into homeostasis. So I learned a lot of stuff in that program, but it wasn't like it was a long, you know, when you share your healing journey, right? People are like, Oh, great. Okay, I'll just start that. And that's awesome. You should start that. But it's like small steps, right? Like, I've been working on this since 2016 and this is 2022. And, you know, I still have things to do I still have things to change, to get a healthier mindset. And that's part of your program, your program was that piece of the puzzle for me.
Amber B 16:04
Yeah. And what I love about your story, too, that I hope that people are hearing it in your story, you know, whether or not they can relate to all the, like, medical conditions that you had, what I'm hearing from you is that there are different elements that need to be addressed in a person. And they may not all be addressed in the same program with the same coach in the same like sphere. But it's like you address this part of yourself in this area. And then you realize there was also another part that needed healing or that needed attention, and you went for this area. And so a lot of what has been fun to be able to see you progress, especially in Beyond MACROS 101, is in the mindset is in how you're thinking about yourself, and what's possible for you and taking that history that you have, and it's relevant, but not necessarily bringing it with you to predict what it's possible for you in the future. So I know one of the things that you let you told me that you feel like you've really grown out of or evolved beyond having a victim mentality. And I'm sure having like an abusive relationship and having all this stuff happen to you, your childhood kind of contributed to that victim mentality. I'm the victim, like, all these things are happening to me. So, you know, what was that like? And I think to be clear, I think there's a lot of women who are in victim mentality, who haven't been in abusive relationships, who haven't had medical conditions and very common mindset, but how was that impacting you? And what changes have you made to get out of that, or to move forward to a more empowered position in your life?
Yeah, so for me, that victim mentality came in from a place of feeling stuck and feeling stuck. Because to me, I was stuck, right? So to me, I was stuck with chronic illness, I was stuck in these relationships. I went from my first marriage and I got out of that, but I didn't correct my mindset. I corrected all these other things. Yeah, you know, I went and got my nutrition on board. And I, you know, I started getting my health better, but my mindset was still terrible. And, you know, I actually, it wasn't right away, but I went into another toxic relationship. And it was more subtle. And it was harder to notice. But the problem with it was my mindset, was my thoughts, my feelings, and what I need doesn't matter. That was my core belief. And I believed that I had a, my mom was wonderful, but I had a somewhat dysfunctional childhood. And then I had a chronic illness. And the dysfunctional childhood didn't help. But then a chronic illness, I always felt like I needed to make people like, feel better, I didn't want them to feel pity for me or feel sad that I was sick. And so I always tried to make the jokes and just be very strong, and, you know, not make myself the center of attention. Because I didn't want anybody to feel bad, you know, I just am like, Oh, it's okay. You know, it's so fun, you know, getting poked 1000 times, it builds your strength, you know, or just, I don't know, I would just make jokes and just try to keep it light, you know, because it was just so stressful. And so I had developed this core belief that what I felt needed to be ignored, what I needed, needed to be ignored because I needed to focus on what others needed and that was more important. And so that kind of mindset, number one leads to very poor boundaries. And if you don't have boundaries, that's for anybody listening that struggles with boundaries, please know that you're not doing anybody a favor by struggling with boundaries. You're not doing a kindness to others. And I say that with love because that is what I thought. I thought my not having boundaries was kind to others because I felt like having boundaries was somehow being mean. But boundaries are amazing. When you have boundaries, people know what you expect and what you accept.
And so whenever I came into you, it's like I listen to this, I listen to parenting all the time, because I really don't want to mess up my kids like, that's all. And that's in thinking again. But like, I listen to so many parenting things. And this talk I listened to recently, she said, “Think of it like bumpers at the bowling alley, right? You put the bumpers up for the kids. So the ball goes in the right place, you need to put up your bumpers, and teach your kids how to put up bumpers, so that people know how to treat you and how to treat them. And whenever you're putting up those bumpers, you know, with your children, that's modeling for them, right? How did you do that?”
Amber B 20:42
And don't we do that because it's more fun for our kids. Like we put a bumper so they can have fun bowling and don't get discouraged every time they goes into the gutter. And so I just like, that's such a good metaphor that you just really, because it's just like what you said before is like people think that you're being nice by not doing boundaries, it's like, but you're not nice if you don't put bumpers up for your kids, like that's actually nice to put bumpers up, they have a better time doing it.
Yeah, because they know where their balls trying to go. Like, it's the same with any person in your life, if they don't know and then you're upset because they've crossed your boundary that you've never expressed and you're not doing anybody a favor. And even if you internalize that, it's gonna impact your relationships, you know, you might internalize it. That's me, I internalize that stuff. But it still impacts your relationships, because you start building a wall away from that person because they continuously cross boundaries that they have no idea.
Amber B 21:36
That they didn’t know they had. Because you never told them?
So your program has really helped me because this is something you said. So you said there are beliefs and there are facts. And I never thought of this. I never like that never even occurred to me. I just thought the things I believe are facts, the end. I have health issues, and that makes it harder to lose weight. I, if I have opinions and feelings, and I express those, then I'm not being kind to others. But then once you said that, I was like, “Okay, if somebody else has opinions and feelings, do I feel like they're not being kind? No, that's kind of ridiculous. I fully expect people have their own feelings and their own opinions and their own needs. So why am I any different? What makes me so special, that I'm the only person in the whole world that can't have those things and that those things don't matter for me” I'm like, that doesn't even make sense. But I've truly believed that for 36 years of my life, 36 years, that's a long time to believe something that is not true. It's just not. And so that was a huge shift for me in your course. And it's funny, because of course, you're talking about nutrition, right? You're talking about macros.
And, you know, I think I listened to a coaching call. I don't know, I listen to all your coaching calls. So who knows? But, you were talking to somebody and you said, like, hey, you know, we're opening these doors, you know, we're giving you these– I'm summarizing, I'm sure this isn't how you said it– But we're opening these doors, and I'm bringing these like ideas to you. But there's a point where therapy needs to take over, right? Like, if there are major issues, you know, you maybe can't do all the work by yourself. And I was like, okay, you know, like, maybe I can make time for myself for therapy, because now I matter, right? So before it never made time. Yeah. And so I started going to therapy. And that is where I learned that I was still kind of in the midst of a still a toxic relationship. And I was just like, grateful. It wasn't as bad as before, right? I'm like, Okay, this isn't like as bad. And she's like, compared to what, which is what? What are you comparing this bad to? And I'm like, “Well, my last one–” She's like, “Yeah, like, you got things thrown at you, and you don’t now, but does that still make it okay?” And I'm like, “Well, probably not.” And so, you know, that really opened my eyes and it has, it's been hard because like, still, even though I've shifted my thinking a lot, I still don't want to hurt people, even if they hurt me. I don't I just don't want to hurt anyone. And I just want to like, keep the peace I'm you know, if you do the Enneagram, I'm a nine, I’m a peacemaker, I like to keep conflict low. But I'm more of like hide in my bed kind of peacemaker. And so it can be very, and I don't know, I've read a lot about the Enneagram, I'm pretty sure my type has come about from life experience. You know, like they say you're born whatever you are. And so I don't know, maybe I'll change at some point and not really be that but that's the one I identify with now because I just hate conflict so much. But I've come to realize conflict, just like boundaries isn't bad. It's only bad if you're doing it and if you're only if you're experiencing it in a disrespectful way. And so again, that's one of those limiting beliefs that conflict is bad, no conflict is great because you get to the bottom of the problem. And both people show respect during that. And if that's not happening, that's not real. That's not good communication. That's poor communication, that's toxic communication, and you should run, you know, and you should go find a relationship, where you're being treated with respect in whether your opinions or whether your opinions match up or not, you can agree to disagree, you can disagree, or you can agree, those are three different things you can do without it having to lead to only one person being right. Okay, because everybody's different.
Amber B 25:48
That's so good. You have had so many, I just like I just want, I hope people are taking notes, because I feel like you this just the things that you have said and the aha moments that you've had, and that wisdom that you're passing on to people who are listening to this podcast, there is so much wisdom in the things that you're saying. And yeah, it's just it's really good. So like, I know, we could go on forever. And this maybe isn't a terrible question to like, end on. But if there was one thing that you would say, hey, to the woman who's listening to this podcast, you're gonna walk away from this podcast with one thing that I want you to like, remember? What would that be?
Okay. So first, before I totally end, I feel like, you know, we talked about there are different modalities, right? And there are different steps to get to where you're going. And you don't have to do it in any certain order, just take the first step and work on that. Don't feel like you're in a rush. Because what do you always say about that, like, you're gonna get there, when you get there, like, you're trying to rush through it, or trying to do it fast or perfect or have a certain timeline is not going to be beneficial. Just do the work, get through it and then you can move to the next thing.
And I want to preface this by saying, had I found your program, had I found your Instagram, before I found homeopathy, it would have done nothing for me, not because it's not amazing. It's amazing, the content is great, but my mind could not have digested it, I could not have heard it or accepted it because I was in such a bad frame of mind. Like, I'm a really positive person. If anybody knows me, this listening to this would be like, “Why you're in a bad frame of mind. You're the most positive person I know.” But inside, in my processing part, because I process alone, I was in such a bad place that I couldn't have heard what you said, or like I wouldn't have accepted it for myself, I'd be like, Yeah, that's great information for someone else. But because I actually saw a homeopathic practitioner, and she put me on a remedy for, like the so the remedy that I'm on is for more than one remedies, because she does Practical Homeopathy. So she treated lots of things. But the one that has helped me the most is for somebody that has no boundaries. So it's somebody that lets people walk all over them. And homeopathy is really cool because it helps your body reach homeostasis, which, hello, I have had no homeostasis. So like that was my core problem. And so that's what this modality of medicine does is help you reach homeostasis. So she put me on this medicine. And it took a full year, it took a full year before I could really notice that my mind was shifting, and it wasn't something that I was making happen. And, and I really felt like God led me to this woman that helped me with it. And I actually started going to school for homeopathy because it helped me so much. But I was on this for a full year.
And then I found your program. And I think I listened to it before but I just wasn't like super engaged, because I just kept thinking that thought like, “Oh, this won't, you know, this won't help me. But it's great. It's great content.” And then just one day, my mind just kind of shifted and I thought like, “Actually think this could help me.” And I did the 10-day Challenge that you had the free challenge. And I did all the mindset stuff that you did on that Challenge. Like I wrote down everything you said to do. I loved the miracle scale that was so helpful to see that your zero is not.. You're not at zero, you know? And so I guess my very long recommendation is, if you're listening to this, and you know, you feel like you're a lost cause, you know, you feel like this is good for someone else, but it's not good for me. Start somewhere. So whether you start with Amber's program and you do the mindset stuff, whether you need to go do something else and come back to the mindset stuff, and then learn about the macros and learn about– I mean I've lost a total of 40 pounds with your program and I only started it your last, so your fall opening when I did, so fall 2021. I lost during my first cut, I lost 10 pounds. And then now I reversed up to maintenance and I got to add, I think 600 calories. I don't know, I'm not like it's like, I could have probably added more, but I just couldn't eat anymore. My stomach was like, stop giving me so much food. I was I'm at like 2400 calories, 2500 calories. And that was just kind of my max. But wherever you decide to start, I'm rambling. But wherever you start, just start. Start and take slow steps and stop putting a limit on when it has to be complete. It's complete when it's complete. And then you'll move on to the next thing that you need.

Oh, amen. I couldn’t say it any better myself, Audra. That was amazing. Thank you so much for sharing your story, your the lessons that you've learned. Like I said, You are a wise wise woman. So thanks for sharing it.
Thank you. Thank you, thanks for having me on. I really appreciate it.
Beyond the things I said that you could do in the natural world. And sometimes that's the first things that come to mind, when I'm talking in this conversation about changing your life. I just want to mention how much of an impact God has had in my journey. Without God, I would have never found you Amber, I would have never found homeopathy, I would have never been able to come off the 21 medications, and I would never have had my children. So I think my most important tip for anyone that's listening, to learn from my journey, and what I've walked through in this life so far, is to go to God and seek His guidance and seek His wisdom and ask Him to lead your path. Because without him, nothing, nothing in my journey could have ever happened. And you know, I believe in healing. And I believe what the Bible says. “By His stripes, we are healed.” But I believe that God does that in a lot of different ways. And for me, that journey took place by Him leading me to your podcast, and by leading me to homeopathy, and by leading me to Integrative Nutrition school where I learned to change the environmental load that was on my body. And so I just want to encourage anybody that is just getting started or starting over for what feels like the 100th time to go to God and just pray. And there's this really great YouTube channel that has just amazing scriptures that you can kind of meditate on and just listen to, and it's called soakstream, S-O-A-K-S-T-R-E-A-M. And I just love they're different. They have morning meditations, they have scriptural meditations that you can listen to overnight. And I actually bought the premium of YouTube so I could download it because I like to put my phone on airplane mode when I sleep. And so I actually upgraded on YouTube just for this channel alone so that I could listen to the overnight ones because they helped me sleep and they're very comforting. So anyway, I just want to add to my journey, the importance of God and how He has worked out everything for my good. And you know, without Him, none of it would have been possible. So I'm very grateful to God.

I hope you enjoyed that episode with Audra, I hope you pulled out some of the lessons, she gives you so many lessons that really you could take and start working on today. You know, are you going to be perfect at it? No. But perfection was never the goal. Perfection was never what was going to be required. It was simply, “Is there something that I can work on? Is there something I can apply today? And how is that going to help me to take one step forward to the results that I want?” That's always, always going to be the goal here.
